The preview button won't open in a new tab or new window.
Can someone please let me know how to get the preview feature in the workspace to open up a new tab or new window? It is opening in the same window and it is getting very annoying having to either click back from the history tab, command[ or click close and then get prompted.
Please help if you can. Thanks!

The normal behavior of the preview is to open a new tab in the browser. I have not seen it open in the same window.
Try restarting the workspace, and if that doesn't do it, perhaps restarting your browser.

I'm uncertain why it's necessary to open a new preview each time. Pressing ctrl + f5 should refresh your browser (or the refresh button) So only one preview tab is needed, at a time. However, relaunching the work space may be necessary as you advance to the next video. Then you'd need to delete the former tab, open (preview) a new tab and refresh as needed.
